The trouble with plants is that they grow absolutely everywhere. A great many scientific discoveries have been made by studying plants and there’s an awful lot of the world’s surface to cover. Most of it doesn’t have any kind of ‘conventional’ communication infrastructure.
That’s where our products kick in. Iridium is a global satellite network that offers guaranteed of coverage anywhere you can see the sky.
From the Amazon basin to the top of Everest, our products can provide tracking information and two-way communications – vital to keep in touch with your teams in the field.
The RockSTAR can be used to mark ‘interesting finds’ using the waypoint options, meaning the remote workers can ‘tag’ locations and come back to them later. Back at HQ, using The Core management system, you can monitor their progress and see those remotely marked ‘tags’.
Ground Control was founded in 2002, and we are specialists in what we do. Our aim is to make satellite communications accessible to everybody in a simple and easy to understand way. The satellite market is full of companies who seem to make it complicated and confusing, and we don’t believe it needs to be.
We provide services to a wide range of organisations, ranging from government, military, NGOs, private companies, and consumers.
